Licking River Watershed Watch would not exist
without the work of volunteers.

Our monitoring teams, sample coordinators, instructors,
organizers and advisors are vital to our success.

It is critical that we respect, recognize and
wisely manage their contributions of time and talent.

To ensure that happens, we should adopt the following "Volunteer Bill Of Rights" as policy for our work.

Your Volunteer Bill of Rights:

of true benefit to the community and the cause
